С Днем Рождения!


A year ago, Gaijin Entertainment’s massive war simulator, War Thunder, began in open beta form in Russia. Now, a year later, the game has gone international, gained Steam Greenlight approval, announced PS4 as an upcoming platform, added Oculus Rift support, won awards, and gathered five million players. The trailer below highlights these accomplishments, while showcasing the game’s nail-biting action.

War Thunder puts players in the planes (and soon, tanks) of five nations at war: the USA, Britain, Germany, Japan and the USSR. Giving players the best of World War II aviation, players are encouraged to engage in large battles on land, sea and air for campaigns, solo missions, cooperative gameplay and self-made mission editor campaigns.
